| That is not true. RDDL demonstrates that some namespace identifiers,

| something with this:
|
| SYSTEM "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
|
| that you _cannot_ do with this:
|
| PUBLIC "urn:uuid:89793274983729473298473928"
|
| To me, that IS a difference and a significant one.

Uhm. What exactly can you do with the former that you can't do with
the latter?
